      Major Update to OL (please click to open)   02/09/2016

      Sorry for the inconvenience, but we had to update OL and there have been some serious changes made by IPB. The real bad news is that they had to merge User Names and Display Names. This meant that I had to choose between bad and bad. I opted to keep the log-on information the same, so you can get on OL like you always did, but now your User Name is displayed. If your User Name and Display Name were the same, you will not feel the change. If they were different, you are probably irritated right now. I will figure out how you can change this so you can revert to the Display Name you used before if you like, however this may entail a change in how you log-on. The good news is that OL is now searchable from the very beginning. This means all the old posts from the A-Team in Objectivism (and everybody else) will finally show up when you search for something. I will keep changing this announcement as we adapt to these new changes. It's a pain, I know, but after looking around the backend for a bit, I believe the benefits will far, far outweigh the current irritation. They changed things in a hamhanded way and I don't like that, but I can't do anything about it. Benefit-wise, they actually did a good job, so please bear with us. In addition to this change, many good things are coming over time. You are the reason OL exists and I am sorry you have to go through this. Think of it like birth pangs... (All right, all right, that's forcing it.  ) Michael

Welcome to OL. Why on earth do you call yourself Bogomilist? I can't imagine how it's a good thing.

There was a new thread on OO today on the same subject, were you the author? Seems odd that there’s this sudden push to get O’ists onto Reddit.

I clicked your link, and what came up was garbage. I checked out a few items, everything I saw was inane. "Kira Peikoff (Leonard's smokin' hot daughter) is releasing a (fiction) novel..." with a link to her website. Oh brother.

Oh daughter. Smokin hot or not, her fiction novel on government over-interference in stem cell research should be easier to read than a nonfiction novel.

Carol,

She just may be a good writer, but I won't rush for her novel. After your synopsis.

So much so-called Objectivist fiction is terribly derivative. Or, morally thematic to an extreme -I think only one author could get away with this. (Though I might be wrong; I have gaps in my classical reading.)

I like my heroes dimensional, perhaps somewhat flawed, and the theme less in-your-face.

It is putting one's own mind and imagination to work, that the better writers demand of one, I think - 'reading between the lines'- otherwise it could be a text book.

Tony,

The synopsis came from one of her fans - but I won't be rushing to read it either. I did read the opening, it is about a girl riding a bicycle and then falling off it, while her boyfriend from afar can see every small detail (apparently he has telescopic vision). Medical thrillers don't usually interest me much anyway.

You are right about the derivative. Do you indulge in the creative writing that gets posted on OOnline? Gruesome. There is a "short story" called Triumph over there - well, words fail me. The passive voice indeed has a lot to answer for.

"One Small Passive Voice"? Perhaps I shall try to write such a story!
